Compatibility studies of Bacillus spp. with commonly used agrochemicals

MK Harsha, Daunde AT, Bhalerao PB and Sakhare SS
The compatibility of bacterial biocontrol agent (Bacillus spp.) was assessed with seven seed dressers (Thiophanate Methyl + Pyraclostrobin, Mancozeb + Carbendazim, Carboxin + Thiram, Captan, Captan + Hexaconazole, Thiamethoxam and Imidacloprid + Hexaconazole), nine fungicides (Hexaconazole, Propiconazole, Tebuconazole, Thiophanate Methyl, Chlorothalonil, Propineb, Copper Oxychloride, Carbendazim + Mancozeb and Azoxystrobin + Difenoconazole) and five weedicides (2,4-D Amine Salt, Pendimethalin, Oxyfluorfen, Ammonium Salt of Glyphosate and Glyphosate), commonly used by farmers in India for the control of soil borne plant pathogens. Bacillus spp. (BRSN-B2) was found compatible with seed dressing chemicals (Thiophanate Methyl 45% + Pyraclostrobin 5% FS and Thiamethoxam 30% FS), fungicides (Thiophanate Methyl 70% WP and Copper Oxychloride 50% WP) and weedicides (2,4-D Amine Salt 58% SL, Oxyfluorfen 23.5% EC and Ammonium Salt of Glyphosate 71% SG). The usage of these bio-pesticides was made more widespread by their pesticide compatibility since they can be used in integrated disease management to control soil-borne plant diseases.
